After leaving my full-time job in June, 2017 I began to pursue art full-time, and quickly discovered a passion for glass mosaic. Drawing inspiration from our natural environment, particularly the San Francisco Bay Area, it gives me great joy to create beautiful images of trees, flowers, fish, bugs and birds. My work focuses primarily on stained glass created with grout rather than lead, which allows me to work with much smaller pieces of glass to create detailed and delicate images. I also create mosaic works which are not translucent, and I particularly enjoy creating functional works of art such as birdbaths.
I also love to create art on walls, like the entryway mural featuring birds, leaves and branches.
My work has sold at crafts fairs, via Etsy and through many custom commissions. Commissions allow you the opportunity to collaborate with me to create a unique piece that represents something meaningful to you, and to feature it in your own home or office.
In the summer you'll usually find me working in my sunny backyard, where I can glance up to see the birds at the feeder or the birdbath. In the winter I'm inside at the dining room table, happily cutting and gluing glass while listening to my favorite podcasts.
